Sustainable Living Series: Wyoming's Going Green
Sustainable living is the focus of a new series of classes and workshops being offered by the University of Wyoming Community Enrichment Program.
This one-of-a-kind series runs most Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. from Feb. 26 to May 7. The cost is $49 for all nine workshops or $10 for each individual workshop.
This informative and interactive series features members of the Laramie and UW community who teach from their own personal experiences in "going green" and living a sustainable lifestyle.
"Everyone wants to save a little money right now, and people are increasingly concerned with our natural resources and learning about how to conserve," says Heather Landers, Enrichment Programs coordinator. "This workshop will leave community members with concrete tools that anyone can implement into their home or business to work toward reducing their carbon footprint while saving some cash."
Participants will learn how to begin living "off of the grid" by tapping into Wyoming's ample wind and sun energy. Another workshop will focus on what it takes to turn a home or business into a more energy-efficient dwelling. There is also a class on home composting and how to sustain and extend the life of a garden in Laramie's climate, among other interactive workshops.
